after hisev was shotther tamerlan in a confrontation with police. >> this is what terrorism can do. one of america's oldest cities, frozen, lockdown. businesses closed. troops of police to look ready for war. they are throwing everything at this, the police poured into one small suburb of boston, watertown. they are searching for this man, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. he has lived here for years. the family came from chechnya originally. eas brother tamerlan is . his uncles are calling for him to turn hims in. >> if you are alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness from the victims, from the injured, and forgiveness from these people. >> the net) the two man hours after the fbi -- the net closed around two man hours after the fbi released photos. 10:30, the brothers tried to rob a 7-eleven store near the massachusetts institute of technology. then news a police officer was attacked. sean collier,26 years old, was shot as he s in his car. he died soon after. the brothers hijacked a car, and the chase that followed ended in watertown, 10 miles from boston. on the usually quiet sub
federal charges that he and his older brother tamerlan planted pressure cooker bombs near the finish line for the boston marathon. tamerlan later died after a shootout with police. in providence, rhode island, lawyers for tamerlan tsarnaev's wife catherine said she had been unaware of the bombing plot. >> the reports of involvement by her husband and brother-in-law came as an absolute shock to them all. as a mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife, katie deeply mourns the pain and loss to innocent victims, students, law enforcement officers, families and our community. in the aftermath of this tragedy she, her daughter and her family are trying to come to terms with this event. >> woodruff: meanwhile, both the "washington post" and the "new york times" have reported that the younger tsarnaev admitted his role in the attack. the "post" also reported he told investigators that u.s. involvement in the iraq and afghanistan wars were motivating factors. other accounts said there appeared to be no links to larger terrorist groups. in russia today, their mother said f.b.i. agents talked to her abou
tamerlan tsarnaev. he was pronounced dead a short time later at an area hospital. >> this was a trauma arrest. multiple injuries, probably we believe a combination of blasts, potentially gunshot wounds. >> how many gunshot wounds? >> unable to count. >> multiple gunshots? >> yes. >> i'm sorry i didn't hear the rest of that. >> and probably a blast injury also. >> blast meaning what? >> an explosive device, possibly shrapnel, a thermal injury. >> can you describe where it was? >> it was pretty much throughout the trunk, it was multiple wounds. >> would it be consistent with perhaps a bomb strapped chest, would it be consistent with that? >> unclear. i think the medical examiner will be able to conclusively say that, but there were signs of more than just gunshot wounds. >> reporter: the brothers were of chechen heritage and came to the u.s. around ten years ago. a circuitous path took them through dagestan, a volatile region in southern russia. 26-year-old tamerlan reportedly was a hip-hop fan, and a gold gloves boxer. in an online spread of photos that showed him boxing, he was quoted
of tamerlan tsarnaev, after he spent six months in russia. senator diane feinstein, chairing the intelligence committee, said senior f.b.i. may testify tomorrow about why they did not pursue the matter further. i misspoke in that set-up piece. tsarnaev was read his miranda rights in his hospital room today. we're joined by a reporter who has been following developments closely. dina temple raston is npr as anti-terrorism correspondent. welcome to you. do we know how much or what investigators are learning from tsarnaev in the hospital so far? >> well, there's been very little that they've learnd because he can't really understand that he can't speak. he has a tube in his throat. he has some sort of a wound on his neck and his hand. apparently to his jaw. there's some question as to whether or not it was a self-inflicted wound. so as a result apparently they're writing notes back and forth. it's unclear if those notes are ra port building so he learns to trust these people who are trying to question him or where they're getting substantive information from him. >> brown: what can you tell us a
're not terribly concerned if they're caught or killed. i think if you look at tamerlan, the older brother, throwing a bomb and charging at a heavily armed group of police in a fire fight, he was not afraid to die and that that may have been actually part of his plan in that moment. so i think you're dealing with someone who's very dangerous. >> rose: we continue with the conversation with two people who are experts on the digital revolution. they are walt mossberg and kara swisher. >> everything is moving in mobile. if you ask companies like any social network, e-commerce companies, many of them appeared at the conference. the percentage of people doing their readings, transactions, checking with their friends on mobile versus p.c.s or macs is just soaring and i think that's the fundamental underlying headline of everything. >> if you don't have a mobile strategy, a co-hent mobile strategy that makes money you're in trouble. so facebook ran into trouble because people felt they didn't have a mobile strategy then you saw this incredibly aggressive effort to unveil home, which is their new
that they have, homemade explosives. and then at some point during this fire fight the older brother, tamerlan, throws a giant device, a bag, a satchel which apparently we are told contains another one of these pressure cooker bombs just like in the boston marathon and that explodes. but it doesn't explode in the way it's intended. the top comes off when he throws it so the explosive doesn't have the pressure built up that it would be if it was airtight and that's probably the only reason that more police officers weren't killed or maimed or injured there. but he dies in a a hail of bullets and that explosion. in the confusion-- and this may have been part of the plan, i'll rush the police, throw the bomb, you get away-- his brother jumps back in the carjacked vehicle and speeds off, actually backing over his older brother's body in the getaway. goes about five blocks, jumps out of the car. they have set up a perimeter in that area already and they start to tighten up that perimeter thinking if we've got him boxed in we'll search house to house. but many hours later they still haven't found hi
, was tamerlan tsarnaev, 26. he is believed to be the more dominant of the two. there is a discussion whether he controlled or manipulated his younger brother. we've heard that scenario before. he was-- he had said on some internet sites that he was very religious and talked about how he didn't have a single american friend. >> ifill: but in the end, part of what was interesting about this story, aside from the sheer shock of it, was the breadth of the investigation. i heard 9,000 police officers at one point. >> this was really an extraordinary police achievement. i mean, if you think about the thousand of people who were there around the boston marathon on monday, and they basically-- all they could do was to look for somebody that had a black backpack, and acting suspiciously. and they were able to identify two-- a man at each bombing site. that wasn't enough for them, but they did identify these two suspicious characters. the real turn came when they found out that those two individuals were walking together at one point. so you saw two men walking together, and then coincidentally, each of
